Richard Diebenkorn: The Ocean Park Series is the most comprehensive show to date of Diebenkorn's most celebrated works. Coorganized by Orange County Museum of Art in Newport Beach, California, and the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, the exhibition is curated by OCMA curator Sarah C. Bancroft.
Featuring more than 75 paintings, prints, and drawings, spanning two decades—the largest selection ever on view together—this unprecedented project offers visitors the opportunity to explore in-depth the complexity of Diebenkorn's artistic and aesthetic achievements within the Ocean Park series.
By presenting works in various media, this exhibition presents a long-overdue opportunity to explore the breadth and depth of the series as never before possible, showing conclusively the variety, subtlety, and intricacy of the artist's practice. Many of the works have been borrowed from museum and private collections and are rarely seen by the public.
This exhibition is supported by an indemnity from the Federal Council on the Arts and the Humanities.
